New to the area... met some of you guys today on the Poudre

Hey guys. I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Mike... I just moved out here from Washington D.C. to be at CSU. I'm a class III-IV boater and wanted to get to know some of you in the area's awesome paddling community. I'm excited to be here in the Fort... I never plan to leave. Any suggestions regarding area paddling?


-Mike

Hey Mike, welcome to the Fort. You'll be super psyched about being here in the spring and summer, and although there is still some fun to be had in the Poudre, the pickins are slim right now. There is still water around the state...you just have to spend some time in the car.

Nice to meet you and Becky (am I even close? did she say Becky?) yesterday on the river.

3 of us paddle Pine View and Bridges (Easy IV and III) about 2 to three times a week as long as there's enough water to boat on. We were out tonight at 200 cfs and it was quite a fun level for us. Let me know if you're interested in tomorrow....

Thanks

Thanks everybody. Yep you got it right her name is Becky . Can't wait to paddle with all of you sometime in the future. I'm looking to paddle the pine view/bridges section with Jeff tonight for my first Poudre experience. Thanks again for everything.

Hey Mike... glad you, Chris and Luke could make it out tonight. Hopefully the water stays up past Saturday. I'm always up for low flows.

Ganon, Scott, Zack and others... great to meet you all. See you on the river.

Great time!

We all had a great time. Can't wait for the big flows this Spring. We'll be out again tonight for sure. We're gonna get to the Poudre around 4:30 and we'll stay late again. Thanks again... and great meeting you all.
